Artist, BFA Craft/Material Studies 2012, currently sewing, working in my sketchbooks, painting with hard gouache/opaque watercolor, digitizing my illustrations to make ready for sale on threadless and learning to sail.
I am continuing my efforts to scan old drawing books, I have about 10 for the past year... Most of the cool drawings from this particular sketchbook have been removed and put in a portfolio for Mubble inspiration.
I am currently designing standard sizes for ease of production to keep them affordably priced. :)
See some of what I have made so far, below.
"Live Lobster" (8"x10")
A follow up to "Lobster Run" - this time a design specifically for fabric.
Live Lobster as Small Zipper Bags (3"x4"). Made by folding the print in half so that the pattern continues onto back of bag! So far these are my favorite, for little things to go into a drawer or a larger bag.
"Original Mubbles" Print on large prototype bag made from Sunbrella with rainbow striped webbing from an old classic orange lifejacket.
Comments on prototype: Cool funky design and colors, but has no rigidity.
I have done some research into what kind of liner might be nice,
but right now I'm going to focus on smaller simpler bags.
Another prototype, this bag definitely needs a webbing loop for hanging.
The mesh is a fun practical idea I plan to use for more bags, but with vinyl
bottoms which will make a water-resistant bottom with a breathable top.
Good for boats, etc.
7.5"x7.5"x2.6" Sunbrella and "Textiline" Mesh, no liner, easy clean and totally breathable.
The original "Lobster Run" printed twice onto Sunbrella with a textiline mesh top and a webbing loop.
Back side. 7"x8"
"Big Nose" wants to be on your t-shirt! Here we see the actual linoleum block to the left, and a prototype stuffed animal made from the muslin to the right with a twin print on it.
